Here is the video of his Kangaroo flip:

Not a long time ago, it was allready year 2008, Jon Olsson with S.Dumont and Schiller involved in a complete new open freeskiing content. The name was.. mm something like Winter American Open, a ok here it is the North American Open at Breckenridge. In this event there is a new format of qualifing. Every rider has as many runs as he manage to do through a daylight to show himself in front of the judges. When a rider hears the “bib”, he is qualified for the next level.

Here some more great moves from Jon in this video, just perfect flips, grinds and everything else:
